Hi I'm Jason

I was raised in northern Utah, moved to Arizona in late 2000. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in college majoring in Aeronautical Management Technology(prof flight). I enjoy playing almost any sport especially basketball; I also find hiking to be fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in an LDS family and was baptized at the age of eight. I enjoyed going to church and I wanted to believe it was true, but quickly found myself just blindly going through the motions. It wasn't until I was around 16 years old that I really, truly believed what I had been doing all my life. It was my junior year of high school and I had been doing not really anything, as usual. It was then that my seminary teacher gave a lesson that I will remember the rest of my life. Well I say lesson, but really it is high concluding statement that I remember and nothing else as I was daydreaming through the rest of it. I can still hear his words ringing in my mind, He said "Try it! If you don't know it(the church) is true, if you don't think it helps, just try it! Try a two week challenge. Go home today and evaluate your life, write down your thoughts and problems. Then for two weeks straight, do everything you are supposed to. Read your scriptures for at least 15 minutes a day, pray every morning and night, every meal, and anytime in between. Go to church and participate, answer questions and volunteer. After 14 days, sit down and evaluate how your life is then..." I took the two week challenge, it has changed my life and I promise you that if you simply try it you too can know that the church is more than just something you do on Sundays. After the two weeks of doing what I was supposed to do, I never felt more healthy or more happy.

How I live my faith

I am a member of the Indigo Bay Ward, which is a young singles ward. This means that everyone, except the Bishop and his counselors are single and are between the ages of 18(if out of high school) and 30. Being apart of a singles ward is more enjoyable to me as all the activities and church events are directed toward that age group.
